, joe biden and dick gephardt. c-span: you mention in the opening that jesse jackson just didn't quite make the cut. how come? >> guest: my final criteria for the list of guys that i profiled was that i wanted the people who got to the point where they made that last turn in the road, where they thought to themselves, "not only should i be president, i'm going to be president. it's going to happen to me." when i saw jesse making that turn finally and for one brief week, it was after the michigan caucuses and everybody in the world wanted jesse. so i couldn't slow him down long enough to give him a sense of the help that would be required so much of the story in this book is internal, from behind the candidates eyes, that it really couldn't be done without their help. so when i couldn't get that kind of help from jesse, i decided that it was better to leave him out and preserve the level of the book, rather than write about somebody that i didn't know as well. c-span: it's how many pages -- 1,000, 1,100? >> guest: a thousand forty-seven at last count. c-span: how did you get a publisher
